2014 NZIPP Wedding Album of the Year

Rachel & Sam

In addition to the Wedding – Classic category, Jason also took home the trophy for Wedding Album of the Year.

The judges called it “great photography meets great design“, and that’s something we pride ourselves in. It’s even in our name! We’re not just photographers, we’re an all-round creative team, and every aspect of our presentation is carefully considered.

 

As with previous years (2012, 2013) we’re always aiming to create something different, something unique, something not seen before.

Rachel & Sam’s theatrical wedding was an obvious choice, even before we’d started on the design, and during brain-storming and concepts, we started creating the idea of a movie/theatre “storyboard”.

The following design was born. Rachel & Sam, in “A Midsummer Night’s Dream“.

NZIPP Iris Awards 2014

Wedding Album & Classic Photographer of the Year

And the winner of the Wedding Album Category is… Jason Naylor.

My heart skipped a beat, and I rushed to the stage to take my award and mumble some sort of acceptance speech. I’ve had my eye on the Wedding Album award for a few years now – when we usually spend 12hrs capturing a wedding day, a wedding album seems the most appropriate way to present that. It was an honour for the judges to recognise our creative album, and thanks to Rachel & Sam for the most amazing theatrical wedding.

I’d barely sat in my chair, when then came the 2nd announcement:

Wedding Classic… Jason Naylor!

This was unexpected. This left me speechless. I didn’t know what to say. Winning 2 NZIPP categories – Wedding Album and Wedding Classic – in the same year has me absolutely floored. Again, thanks to our clients for letting us try a few things and create something different.

‘Humbled’ is one word to describe it. ‘Flabbergasted’ is another. I’m also genuinely stoked, happy and excited.

My good buddy Jake Thomas Photography took out the Wedding Creative award. Top job!

Kudos to the other finalists: Jenny Siaosi Photographer; Katherine Williams @ Tandem Photography; and Clinton Lloyd @ Lovelight Wedding Cinema & Photography. Your work was creative, innovative and beautiful, and had me genuinely not expecting these awards. I’m honoured.

NZIPP Wedding Photographer of the Year 2014

Mel & Matt

How did Matt get a hottie like that to a party like this?

Gear Homestead. Actually the scene of the infamous alien battle from Peter Jackson’s Bad Taste, although this day was nothing like that movie. :)

Replace gore and blood splatter with sunshine and warmth, replace guns with bottles of bubbly and replace aliens from space with a bride and groom clearly in love, and you have the recipe for a fantastic wedding!

The always awesome Rowan from Invision Photography was a second shooter for me on this particular wedding, and he rocked it. Thanks buddy.
